The Homecare nurses of KMHC work collaboratively with KSCS's Home and Community Care Services and other professionals to provide health care to individuals who cannot seek medical attention due to diminished mobility, illness or their physical condition.
The program is aimed towards the elderly, chronically ill, disabled, terminally ill, and those convalescing from major hospitalizations necessitating nursing care. Ongoing nursing visits provide support and supervision needed to maintain an independent lifestyle and safely meet the demands of daily living.
Referrals to the Kahnawake homecare team are made by physicians, other agencies, family members, neighbors and patients themselves.
Home care services are provided Monday to Friday 8:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M. and on weekends for scheduled patients.
- On-call services are provided for palliative care patients.
- Evening dressing changes.
- Intravenous therapy
